Indian Harbour, FL: A Great Place to Live
At only two square miles, with a population of 8,000, Indian Harbour Beach is called “Florida’s Greatest Little City” for good reason. This residential gem, a favorite for apartment rentals, sits peacefully on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon along Florida’s Space Coast in southern Brevard County.
Just 50 years old, Indian Harbour Beach developed as a community for employees of in the space industry at the Kennedy Space Center, 15 miles north. Today 75% of residences are owner-occupied, with 25% being rental properties. Most structures were built after 1990. One of the newer rental complexes is the Palm Beach Condominiums, offering luxury condominium rentals facing the Atlantic.
Indian Harbour Beach has its own police force, volunteer fire department, public works department, and elementary school. Junior high and high school students are educated in nearby Indialantic and Satellite Beach. Major hospitals can be found across the lagoon in Melbourne, as is public transportation, access to Interstate 95, and Melbourne International Airport. The larger city is also a source for shopping, entertainment, and employment.
Indian Harbour’s working population is evenly spread among health care and social services, public administration and administration support services, construction, and retail trade, with a slight edge toward manufacturing and science/technology services.
A diverse population enjoys oceanside and lakeside parks, a community center with heated, competition-size public pool, tennis courts, activities, and a million-dollar sports facility for baseball and soccer.
